Joshua Waters has a passion for helping clients as they make important decisions in life’s journey.

Throughout his practice, Joshua has seen firsthand how navigating the legal process is often mentally and physically draining. That is why it is important to him to make sure clients understand their case or legal issue and that they feel confident in the advice and guidance they get from their attorney. Joshua has a background in litigation, and he has helped clients obtain favorable (and substantial) trial verdicts and settlements. 

Joshua has substantial experience in helping individuals who have been injured and families who have experienced the death of a loved one. He also assists clients in insurance disputes, family law and child custody matters, contract disputes, and other business-related matters.
